Junk Heap Information
The Junk Heap is an old abandoned military base with still a still functioning system of power and defense. It seems that no one is able to explain how the place is still running and the technology of the old world was lost in time. Junk Heap goes down into different levels with different types of enemies in each section. The elevator codes are obtained from either Jakob or Gideon to access different levels. The area is equipped with a highly functional defense system that consists of walls and floor turrets and different types of defense robots. Each enemy from different sections and levels would also drop different metal parts. The enemies vary from ground robots to flying robots.
Since the area is old and dilapidated some rooms are sealed or cluttered with debris. The game provides a tutorial for these barriers called 'breakable fences' Sometimes the Junk Heap will spawn a sphere bomb from its rising platforms so that these doors can be cleared and passed through.
Mine Carts are also accessible and Interactable in Junk Heap to transport NieR around the different areas.
